The Winds of Badlands

The Winds of Badlands is a collection of pieces Jill wrote while an Artist in Residence at South Dakota’s Badlands National Park. The wind was her constant companion while she explored this stark landscape and it greatly influenced her compositions.

Featured Musicians

David Cullen on guitar and bass, Graham Cullen on cello


“Though many of Jill’s most lush and compelling works are piano driven, her artful texturing of oboe and English horn with David Cullen’s acoustic guitar on her latest album The Winds of Badlands brings to mind the many exquisite dual albums by Eric Tingstad and Nancy Rumbel. While Jill brings echoes of all those glorious paths of the past, her soul-conscious texturing of fresh, poetic whimsy and reflective grace takes us forward into this era where the battle for the soul of these places, and the earth itself, is a sociopolitical reality. ” Read Review
